The Best Turntables of 2019

Last updated on May 28, 2019 

All Hail the Return of the Turntable.

Although some people thought the return of the turntable was no more than a passing fad, we’re proud to present our own carefully vetted list of the best turntables for 2019 – 13 different models in all – culled by price, features and performance. 

As a result, premier audio brands all over the world have stepped up, offering turntable product lines for every budget. Our pros reviewed turntables from all of them while weighing in on the features you should focus on at every tier.

The good news for newbies: if you’re not sure you’ll fall in love with playing records, you can opt for a turntable as low as $100. That way, you get the same tactile experience so many others rave about (and surprisingly good sound) without a major $ commitment. Then, if you do fall in love vinyl, you can drop serious bucks on a serious set-up and start enjoying the kind of goosebumps only vinyl can make happen. 

However, if you’re a serious music lover who already appreciates the difference quality gear brings to the table, welcome to what many consider the industry’s finest repository of all-things music playing: World Wide Stereo. 

Whether you are new to the world of turntables or a lifelong fan, we offer a standing invitation to any of our turntable clinics as well as complimentary time – as little or as much as you want – to consult with any of our World Wide Stereo audio technicians.

1. The Best Turntable for Under $100: Audio-Technica AT-LP60X Turntable

Audiotechnica ATLP60X

BRAND & MODEL:   Audio-Technica AT-LP60X

REG PRICE:    $99

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Fully Automatic 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Integral Dual Magnet™ phono cartridge

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in Preamp is switchable for phono or line-level output

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

You’re looking at the best “less than $100” turntable on the market – hands down. The AT-LP60X comes by way of Audio-Technica, a top brand that routinely delivers solid quality gear at incredibly reasonable prices. This 2019 version of the AT-LP60X comes with improvements on the already best-selling 2018 model – featuring a redesigned tonearm base and headshell to improve tracking and reduce resonance. What’s more, Audio-Technica now includes an AC adapter that moves the AC/DC conversion to the outside of the chassis, so it has less impact on the signal chain, which further reduces noise. (Note: to make sure you’re getting the latest version with the latest improvements, check to see that the model # has an “X” at the end, as in AT-LP60X.) All in all, this is an outstanding, entry-level turntable option.


2. The Best Beginner Turntable: U-Turn Audio Orbit Plus Turntable

U-Turn Orbit Plus Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   U-Turn Audio Orbit Plus

REG PRICE:    $309

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Ortofon 2M Red cartridge (with elliptical diamond stylus.)

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not Built in / Additional Pluto Phono Preamp Optional ($70)

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

The U-Turn Orbit Plus was a fan favorite before it even hit the market, thanks to a 2014 Kickstarter campaign. The reason: there’s a lot to like, starting with build options that let you pick the base color, platter material (acrylic in the photo above), cartridge, and more. Though U-Turn’s minimal, plug & play design is ideal for beginners, we had ours up and running in less than 5 minutes. There’s no short-cutting when it comes to sound; even our most finicky audio pros give the new Orbit Plus a thumbs up.

U-Turn not only builds every Orbit Plus by hand in their Boston plant but they also assign an audio technician to listen to each before sending it along. (Impressive for this price range.) The only button on the Orbit Plus is for power – there’s no speed switch; you have to manually switch the belt from one groove to another to change RPM speed. If you’re a hands-on type, no biggie… but if you’d prefer a switch that changes speed for you, the Orbit Plus isn’t for you. (Do you really listen to that many 45s?)

A straight, understated tonearm glides on a pivot-style bearing positioned close to the record, which allows for more accurate groove tracking.  One detail to note is that this does not come with a cue lever built-in.  U-Turn offers a cue lever as an optional attachment which you can find the cue lever hereEach Orbit also ships with the cartridge already installed and tracking force perfectly calibrated, which is also great for beginners.   

P.S. U-Turn makes a special version of the Orbit with a pre-amp built in, called The Orbit Special.” Check it out.


# 3. The Best Automatic Turntable: Denon DP-300F

denon dp-300f fully-automatic turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Denon DP-300F 

REG PRICE:    $329

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Fully Automatic 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Denon MM cartridge; compatible with a variety of cartridges weighing between 5.0 and 10.0 g

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in preamp

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

Denon’s DP-300F picks up where turntables left off after CDs took over in the 1980s. At the time, most consumer turntables were fully automatic. People listinening to  would put a record on the platter, push a button, and they were done.  From there, the turntable picks up the tonearm, places it over the beginning of the record, gently puts it down, and voilà, music. At the end of the record, the turntable automatically lifts the tonearm, gently puts it back in its holder, and then turns itself off. Convenient, yes, but fully automatic is more about not accidentally scratching your records.

What’s more, given the DP-300F’s preamp (included) can be turned on or off, you can plug it into almost any integrated amp or receiver – even those without a phono input port. This allows the DP-300F to work with almost every home music system. Switching out the cartridge is easy too, should you ever decide to upgrade for something with a bigger range. Do that, and the Denon DP-300F is easily on par with turntables that cost two or three times as much. As for looks, the DP-300F is attractive yet unassuming, a classic look built on 4mm thick cabinet walls made of die-cast aluminum. (We love the gloss coating.) 

So: good-looking, built like a tank, fully automatic, compatible with almost everything, easy to upgrade, made by Denon – an industry legend. What’s not to like?


# 4. The Best Turntable Under $500: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Turn-table

Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Turn-table

BRAND & MODEL:   Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Turntable 

REG PRICE:    $399

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Ortofon 2M RED moving magnet cartridge with elliptical diamond stylus

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not built in - you will need a separate phono preamp, such as the Pro-Ject Phono Box MM Phono Preamp or the Pro-Ject Pre Box DS2 Digital Preamplifier

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

Welcome to the land of entry-level audiophile gear and the best-selling turntable in the $300 - $500 price range (according to Turntable Lab) – the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC. The“Debut” series has been a favorite among music lovers since the late 90s, and like any good, forward-thinking company, Pro-Ject modifies every model, every year, with the latest and newest materials and upgrades.  It's no surprise that the Debut makes our list. (Pro-Ject’s Debut was the first mass market turntable to dominate in the turntable comeback.) 

The 2019 version comes with a carbon tube tonearm (typically seen only on higher-end turntables) that increases stiffness while decreasing resonance. And that, along with a bigger, heavier platter affords smoother rotation and much improved sound. Moreover, Pro-Ject’s new and improved low-noise belt drive system, coupled with a new low-noise DC-driven AC motor, serve to lessen vibration while assuring rotational speed stability.

Bottom line: The Pro-Ject Debut is approaching legendary status in the audio industry – and it sounds great. (We spun a good copy of Steely Dan’s Pretzel Logic, which sounded so much warmer than any later digital version.) Technical specs aside, the Debut would look right at home on a pedestal at the Museum of Modern Art. This is a great looking machine. It comes in 7 high-gloss colors, including black, screaming red, green, blue, yellow, silver, white, or walnut mat.


# 5. The Best DJ Turntable: Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB XP

AudioTechnica AT-LP1240-USB XP

BRAND & MODEL:   Audio-Technica AT-LP1240-USB XP

REG PRICE:    $499

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Direct Drive (multipole motor)

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Fully Manual

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45, 78 

CARTRIDGE:   Audio-Technica AT-XP5 DJ cartridge and stylus

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in switchable phono pre-amplifier with detachable

OUTPUT TYPES:   USB, RCA 


Why it won

Now, we’re entering serious / you-must-really-love-your-music / maybe you’re even a professional DJ territory – and Audio-Technica has the goods. The AT-LP1240-USB XP (let’s go with ”XP” for short) was made to do two things very well. 1) It can hit the road as a touring turntable for professional DJs to use in clubs or in mobile DJ applications, and/or B) it can sit on your shelf at home and remind you just how much better and happier life is when beautifully scored with your favorite music. Though you can see the full list of AT-LP1240-USB XP specs right here, some highlights include: 

It’s gorgeous, in a matte black and silver Harley Davidson sort of way. With a built-in switchable phono preamp, the XP plays nice with almost any receiver, powered speaker and AV component on the market, and the USB output gives you a direct connection to everything digital. (And makes converting LPs to MP3s a snap.) The direct-drive, high-torque, multipole motor is quiet yet powerful, and professional DJs love that about the XP. Typical reviews by DJs cited, “durable, easy to set up, great sound, simple controls, strong motor, very powerful.”

Audio-Technica’s AT-LP1240-USB XP would be impressive at $999. But, $499? That’s amazing.

Also check out the  Audio-Technica AT-LP120BK-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable. Worth a look and costs about $200 less. 

# # 6. The Best Budget Turntable with a Preamp: U-Turn Audio Orbit Special Turntable with Built-In Preamplifier

u-turn orbit special turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   U-Turn Audio Orbit Special Turntable with Built-In Preamplifier 

REG PRICE:    $549

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   The award-winning Ortofon 2M Red cartridge

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Pluto Phono Preamp

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

Somewhere on this page, we gave “Best Beginner’s Turntable” to the Orbit from U-Turn Audio. Now, we’re talking about the Orbit “Special" and what makes it so special – the fact that it comes with a Pluto Phono Preamp already built-in. (Watch our own Adam Domurad take the Orbit Special for a spin in a recent World Wide Stereo video product review here.)

In addition to the Pluto preamp, U-Turn added a cue lever to the Special (thank you) as well as an acrylic platter. The Special also comes in one of two gorgeous, solid hardwood, plinth finishes: flat cut maple and rift walnut.

The advantage to having a preamp already built in? For starters, since a preamp does what an external amp or receiver does, you have one less piece of equipment to deal with. You can quite literally plug your Orbit Special into any speakers in the house and get up and running in seconds.

For the money, Orbit is hard to beat. And, for an American consumer electronics company, that’s saying something.


# 7. The Best Wireless Turntable: Yamaha MusicCast Vinyl 500 Wi-Fi Turntable

Yamaha MusicCast Vinyl 500 Wi-Fi Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Yamaha MusicCast Vinyl 500 Wi-Fi Turntable 

REG PRICE:    $699

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Pre-mounted moving magnet cartridge

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in phono preamp

OUTPUT TYPES:   Bluetooth, Ethernet, WiFi, Airplay, RCA


Why it won

Yamaha is out to set the gold standard for wireless audio with their own wireless multiroom audio technology, MusicCast, now years in the making. And by gold standard, we’re talking lossless, 24-bit audio streaming throughout the house to up to 10 connected devices. Impressive, to be sure. This year, Yamaha added a turntable to the MusicCast mix – the Yamaha VINYL 500 Wi-Fi turntable – and it’s a beast. (Note: though MusicCast can accept a Bluetooth source, WiFi is far more robust and far better suited to authentic high fidelity.) 

The VINYL 500 weighs in at a little over 12 pounds, and heavy is good in turntable land. It comes in Steinway gloss black and sets it up in 10/15 minutes. And with both line and phono outputs (RCA jacks), you can hardwire everything like it’s 1973, or download the MusicCast app and start streaming literally anything from anywhere. (Your favorite Internet radio stations, your digital collection, whatever.)  But, the real magic happens when you put an album on the VINYL 500. We did exactly that with a pair of stereo MusicCast speakers hooked up, and the experience was everything one would hope for with a top of the line turntable: incredibly warm with deep, round lows and crisp, clear highs. All in all, very human. 

So to the question: is the analog turntable experience – the one everyone is raving about – even possible in a wireless environment? With the right turntable, definitely.


# 8. The Best Turntable for the Money: Rega Planar 3 Turntable with Elys 2 MM Cartridge

Rega Planar 3 Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Rega Planar 3 With Elys2 MM Cartridge

REG PRICE:    $1145

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Elys2 MM cartridge

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not built in - you will need a separate phono preamp, such as Rega Fono Moving Coil Phono Stage

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

The Rega Planar 3 story begins in the UK in the late 70s and continues to this day. It’s about an ever-evolving turntable conceived and built by two devoted lovers of music, Tony Relph and Roy Gandy, and how they keep finding ways to extract every bit of fidelity out of treasured LPs – essentially perfecting a much-beloved product over the course of 40+ years. 

Highlights include: a high-gloss acrylic laminate plinth designed for low mass and high stiffness. A floating-glass” flywheel platter with Optiwhite polished rim, topped with a felt mat, and a low-mass, low-friction tonearm with precision bearings and steel counterweight – the result of 40 years of research and experimentation.  Rega’s own Elys 2 moving magnet cartridge will come factory fitted with this version of the Planar 3. The Planar 3 really sings with the Elys 2 MM cartridge onboard.

The Planar 3 is hailed the world over as the highest-value, entry-level, audiophile turntable since its original introduction back in 1977, and it’s as much a conversation piece as it is a true high-fidelity component. Hi-Fi named its predecessor “Product of the Year” three years running. Herb Reichert of Stereophile magazine said, “I love the way it honors musicians.” 

All this for less than $1,150. Need we say more?


# 9. The Best Turntable Under $1500: Pro-Ject The Classic SB 2-Speed Turntable

Pro-Ject The Classic SB 2-Speed Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Pro-Ject: The Classic SB 2-Speed Turntable

REG PRICE:    $1499

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 MC 

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not built in - you will need a separate phono preamp, such as Pro-Ject Phono Box MM Phono Preamp or the Pro-Ject Pre Box DS2 Digital Preamplifier

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

The only thing classic about Pro-Ject’s Classic SB turntable is the wood-wrapped packaging, which looks like something out of a 1960s Mission Impossible episode. This is a serious, high-end, analog instrument with NSA-level engineering. Inside, Speed Box electronic speed control, a Sumiko Blue Point #2 phono cartridge (which routinely gets the best-in-class reviews), a top grade Clamp It record clamp, and a Leather It platter mat rated best for record stability. 

The Classic B is actually a stepped up, better sounding version of the older Pro-Ject Classic and also includes total mechanical isolation via an aluminum / MDF sub-chassis engineered to hover above the wooden chassis on thermoplastic elastomer balls—six in all. This was Pro-Ject's way of essentially eliminating tiny, imperceptible vibrations. At 9-inches, the carbon fiber + aluminum tonearm is fully adjustable, the same way the most expensive turntables are. And, we’re only warming up here.

You can check out the full list of amazing specs for this turntable here.  This turntable sounds amazing and delivers phenomenal sound (pleasing even the fussiest audiophile) for less than $1500. The wood framing is actually quite handsome and comes in 3 matt finishes: walnut, rosenut, and eucalyptus.


# 10. The Best Hi-Res Wireless Turntable: Cambridge Audio’s ALVA TT Direct Drive Turntable

Cambridge Audio Alva TT Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Cambridge Audio ALVA TT 

REG PRICE:    $1699

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Direct Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   High-Output Moving Coil (MC) Cartridge pre installed

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in phono preamp

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA , Bluetooth


Why it won

Cambridge Audio’s Alva TT turntable isn’t just the world’s best hi-res wireless turntable, it’s the world’s only hi-res wireless turntable, as in the world’s first Bluetooth aptX HD turntable (thanks to Qualcomm® aptX™ HD – a technology that can squeeze HD audio from a Bluetooth connection) with a 24bit/48kHz standard. So to be clear, we’re talking about a high-end analog turntable that preserves all the warmth, niceties, and human soulfulness we want from our turntables but with absolute digital precision and no wires. (Interior designers will love how you can put it anywhere – though there are RCA output jacks on the back for hard-wiring.) 

At almost 25 pounds, the ALVA TT is battleship solid. It comes with a single one-piece aluminum tone arm, a direct drive for consistent speed / perfect tracking, it’s easy to setup, it connects to any bluetooth speaker, amplifier, or headphones in seconds, and it sounds spectacular. One song where that really came through for us: Sinatra’s 1966 “Summer Wind” with Nelson Riddle’s backing. What is it like standing next to Sinatra on stage? The ALVA TT will put you there. 

This is an audiophile’s turntable to be sure. True to its British roots, the ALVA TT is more unassuming than flashy and absolutely worthy of Cambridge Audio’s 50th anniversary year. This is excellent work.

 Watch our own Adam Domurad give his full review the ALVA TT here.


# 11. The Best Turntable Under $2000: Pro-Ject 6Perspex DC SuperPack Turntable

Pro-Ject 6Perspex DC SuperPack Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   Pro-Ject 6Perspex DC SuperPack

REG PRICE:    $1999

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO III

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not built in - you will need a separate phono preamp, such as the Pro-Ject Phono Box MM Phono Preamp or the Pro-Ject Pre Box DS2 Digital Preamplifier

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

At this price point, we’re firmly in audiophile heaven where almost everything is 5-star: build quality, performance, sound, specs – everything. Sort of like shopping Ferrari vs. Lamborghini vs. Bugatti. Project's 6Perspex DC SuperPack stands out among the best. 

Turntables $2K and up typically come with a well engineered floating suspension system like this one. The Perspex DC sub-chassis (made of corian) is suspended by three opposing magnetic fields (each adjustable for height) and floats above its thick, visually stunning clear acrylic plinth, and the net effect is very cool. Pro-Ject’s new carbon-fiber, 9-inch tonearm, the 9cc Evolution, includes an integrated headshell also made from a single piece of carbon fiber, which allows adjustment of the needle azimuth in spite of the fixed headshell. (You can adjust vertically as well.) The MDF platter is belt driven with an all-business vinyl playing surface and record clamp. And, the Superpack includes the Sumiko Blue Point Special EVO III cartridge as well as the Connect-it Tonearm Cable.

Bottom line, there’s a lot to talk about here, and we invite you to check our product page for all the specs. Or, call one of our turntable pros with questions or for more information. We love this stuff as much as you do, and we can talk about it all day long. (And often do.)


# 12. The Best All-In-One Turntable: McIntosh MTI100 Integrated Turntable

McIntosh MTI100 Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   McIntosh MTI100 

REG PRICE:    $6500

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45 

CARTRIDGE:   Sumiko Olympia Moving Magnet cartridge

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Built-in shielded phono preamplifier

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

The McIntosh MTI100 is getting a lot of press for a lot reasons. For one, it’s McIntosh. Two, it comes fully loaded with literally everything: a power Class D amplifier rated for 80 Watts per channel, a vacuum tube preamplifier section, a separate shielded phono preamplifier, an unbalanced auxiliary input, digital audio coaxial and optical inputs, a Bluetooth receiver, a subwoofer output, and stereo speaker outputs. You can play records or stream via the MTI100’s Hi-Def Bluetooth input (much like the Yamaha), and with analog and digital inputs, you can also hook-up a TV or a CD Player, or whatever. And, a subwoofer port on a turntable – that’s just plain awesome. Bottom line: this all-inclusive turntable looks and sounds like a $6500 turntable – absolutely fantastic – and it comes fully equipped to take over as the centerpiece of any modern home audio system.

Spoiler alert: our very last entry, below, awards “best audiophile” turntable – what we consider the finest turntable on the planet  – to the McIntosh MT5. The McIntosh MTI100, the MT5’s more feature-rich sibling, as runner up. Three reasons why: 

  1. Though both cartridges are top of the line, the MT5’s high output / moving coil cartridge outperforms the MTI100’s Sumiko moving magnet cartridge with regard to sensitivity, finesse and isolation. 

  2. The MT5s platter actually floats above opposing magnet poles, which is unique to the MT5 and virtually eliminates friction of any kind. 

  3. The MT5’s acrylic platter has a much smaller inherent frequency range vs. the MTI100’s milled aluminum platter, and thus is less susceptible to vibrations.

You can also check out our full review of the MTI100 here.


# 13. The Best Audiophile Turntable: McIntosh MT5 Turntable

McIntosh MT5 Turntable

BRAND & MODEL:   McIntosh MT5 

REG PRICE:    $7000

DRIVE PRINCIPAL:    Belt Drive

AUTOMATIC OR MANUAL:   Manual 

RPM SPEEDS:   33 1/3, 45, 78 

CARTRIDGE:   Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 MC 

PHONO PRE-AMP:   Not built-in

OUTPUT TYPES:   RCA 


Why it won

If turntables in the $2k price range and up are like high-end sports cars, then maybe turntables in the $5K and up range are like high-end jet aircraft. If that’s the case, then the semi-automatic MT5 from McIntosh – the world’s undisputed amplification champion –  is a show-stopping F/A-18 Hornet. (The tonearm is made of Dural-Aluminum, often used in fighter jets, so the analogy fits.)

The MT5 weighs in at 31.5 pounds, making it the heaviest turntable on our list. (Turn it up. It won’t vibrate.) It integrates with ease, especially when mated to a 2-channel McIntosh preamp. It comes with McIntosh’s precision tonearm and the much-loved Sumiko Blue Point No.2 MC cartridge, though some customers swapped-out the Sumiko for something they felt was better suited to the MT5. (Call to discuss.) The sub-platter, made from anodized aluminum, sits beneath the silicone acrylic outer platter. The combination rests on a ceramic bearing using magnetic suspension, so it literally floats on a cushion of air above a lit green platter, which is easily dimmable. There’s so much to talk about here – see our MT5 product page for the full story.

The MT5 is a favorite among grammy winners, audiophiles, and music lovers the world over, and our ears agree: this is the best turntable humans have ever created thus far. Very expensive, yes, but this is next-level awesome, or as Rolling Stone called it: “The McIntosh MT5 is the turntable of the Gods.”


Still not sure? We got this.

If you're still not sure which turntable is the best for you,  give us a call or send us an email. Tell us about your system, what kind of music you like, and your budget. We’d be more than happy to help you pick the ideal turntable for you.


One more thing:

Once you pick out your turntable, a last word of advice: buy it from a trusted dealer, and the more experience / the longer the track record, the better. A good dealer will take care of you in the event anything happens. Until then, check out longer-form turntable reviews and videos in our “fun reads” blog, and if you’re ever in the neighborhood, come to one of our turntable clinics. They’re fun (we do a lot of laughing at ourselves), and some of the demonstrations are outrageous. The crowd is typically equal parts audiophiles / newbies.


Speaking of trusted dealers...
